‼️WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR WHEEL?! INSTEAD OF BRIDGE POSE...TRY THIS‼️ . Traditionally bridge pose has always been used as a modified variation of wheel. 😐 . However, if you want to improve your wheel...bridge pose isn’t going to get you very far. 🤷‍♀️ . If your shoulders are in EXTENSION...meaning arms by the sides. We are not prepping as well as we could be. ❌ . If you truly want to prep for wheel...we need to focus more on the upper back (thoracic) extension and shoulder (flexion) upward rotation...along with lengthening our front hip flexors.👊🏼 . When we don’t and then try to force ourselves into wheel. Your most likely to compensate into the low back or by internally rotating the shoulders (elbows out) putting the spine and rotator cuff muscles at risk. 😫 . So next time you want to “prep” for wheel...try these instead. ✅ . 1️⃣ Thoracic Extension (medium block) 2️⃣ Thoracic Extension (high blocks) 3️⃣ Thoracic Extension (yoga wheel) . #thebalancedpt #medflowyoga #ptmeetsyoga #hipmobility #yogaanatomy #yogatutorials #yogateachertraining #ytt200 #ytt .............................................................................

• ACCEPT YOURSELF AS YOU WERE DESIGNED • . I always like to share this next quote because it rules my life and it helped me a lot along this journey. 👇 “God, grant me the SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change; COURAGE to change the things I can; and WISDOM to know the difference.” . As a teenager I didn’t like myself that much, I had low self-esteem and I wanted to change a lot of things on my body. But along the way I learnt to accept the things I couldn’t change and started to change the things I could. So I couldn’t have straighter legs or narrow hips but I could be stronger, more flexible and more resistant. Those were the main aspects that I started to focus on. I learnt to accept myself and actually started to love myself too. 🙏💙 . So in order to love ourselves we have to, first, learn how to accept us the way we are. Then we can focus on providing even more potential to our current body by becoming stronger, mobile and pain free. And somehow we’ll get into a circle of healthy body - healthy mind because everything is connected. . It’s all about changing perspectives and refocus our energy to change what we can and be the best versions of ourselves. 💙 —— Day 7 of #AlwaysMyYogitine is Wheel Pose. This is a full stretch of the front side of the body and it needs to warm up first. It requires the stretching of the shoulders, thoracic spine and hip flexors and the strengthening of the core muscles and glutes. 💪 . THANK YOU all so much for joining us in this week of love!! Thanks to my lovely co-hosts and generous sponsors for making another challenge possible!! ☺️🙏 ——— 🥰 Hosts: @brynny_md @sarahuactive @shiziks @steph_nerdyogi . 💝Generous Sponsors: @freskincare @insideoutsideoutsidein @sashka_co @mymalanecklace @rockinyogilove @vayumudra: 15% discount code with ‘hu15’ ____ #wheelpose #urdhvadhanurasana #yogachallenges #igyoga #yogawheel #everydayyoga #instayogafam #igfitnessgirls #igyogacommunity #igyogafamily #igyogafam #yoginilife #vayumudratribe #yogachallenge2019 #strongercore #yogisportugueses #yogaportugal #backbends #heartopeners #benddontbreak #puppyyoga #yogapuppy #ohmat #dontbuyadopt #rescuedogsrule

It's not about being good at something. It's about being good to yourself.

There’s incredible responsibility in what we as individuals put into the world because everything is happening to the whole. We can pretend our decisions only affect ourselves, but they don’t. What you bring into the room is in the room. What you bring into relationships is in relationships. The energy you give others will always carry farther than you. My work is to become the clearest vessel I can in myself - which is not to say there will be perfection (which isn’t even really the goal - and the moments of dropout are the most potent with learning). But intention plus work, I believe, cannot possibly take me to anywhere but my highest potential. And I so badly want that for every single one of us. #yoga #yogateacher #yogaphotography #yogaphilosophy #yogapractice #yogastudent #asana #onewayticket #practiceandalliscoming #lifestyle #backbend #wheelpose #lembongan #lembonganisland #indonesia #travel #travelphotography #infinitypool #wanderlust #adventureawaits #travelblog #yogablog #domoreyoga #exploremore

It was so lovely meeting this bendy babe @susievanessayoga on my recent @playaviva trip. Making shapes with yogis from all around 🌎 Yogis I have admired on social media for a while, so getting to meet everyone in person was slightly surreal. It’s always great when the real life person is like the person behind the account 🙊😜 I wish we got to do more Susie! Until next time 😘 - Wheel pose for day 4 of #lovechakrachallenge and I went with forearm wheel 😌 - Hosts: @aria.official @asanavanessa @aleksic_twins @lisaschreiberyoga @eirascheper @yoga_mami Sponsors: @aloyoga @alo.moves - Both wearing the new spring line! #aloyoga #wheelpose #forearmwheel #backbends #partnerpose #mexico

As I grow personally, physically, mentally, spiritually & career wisely, I make sure my learners grow with me. Likewise, as they grow in any parts of their lives, I’ll follow suit so that we are always on par with each other, always relevant for one another. And I’ve hoped you’ve truly enjoyed our kundalini yoga this morning. Flowing through, igniting & energising up all the energies inside our body. Truly letting yourselves loose, tapping into your inner self and surfacing that inner child who has been buried so down under in you as we grow. & going home feeling 10 years younger 😙 With me there’s no judgements, no attachments and no expectations. So its our safe carté blanche 🤙🏼 📸 @suhailasri #entrepreneurism #leads #to #infinity #selflearn #selfknowledge #selfdevelopment #selfhelp #growthmindset #asana #yogamotivation #yoga #yogalover #yogainspiration #yogamom #igyogacommunity #igyogafam #yogapose #yogagram #instayogi #yogalife #yogalove #streetart #streetyoga #wheel #wheelpose #wheelposevariation #street #photography

#YogisInTransition2 - Day 7 Yogi’s choice: wild thing > wheel > alien > forearm wheel Yaaaay, made it to the final day, so glad that I joined this challenge! Enjoyed interacting with the lovely hosts and other participants, and opened my eyes to possibilities I hadn’t considered before, e.g. splits and dancer’s pose don’t have to be peak poses. It was good fun incorporating them as transitional moves! 💕. This challenge has also encouraged me to be more creative. This was my first time flowing from 1 backbend pose to another. Usually I would practise alien, stop; practise forearm wheel, stop; etc. Doing them as a flow was awesome!💕 Video sped up x2.

When I feel my anxiety creeping up as I have lately, I know that there's one thing that always makes a world of difference and (obviously - it's me!) that's a regular yoga practice. I found a studio in adelaide - @powerlivingadelaide - that's been a total godsend this last week, pushing my practice in all the right directions - more creative, more playful, but also more considered and deliberate.  After months of sporadic yoga and fitness, my scoliosis has been playing up and the focus here on pelvic and spinal alignment is really helping me work on that. Not only am I feeling all the physical benefits, but the psychological benefits of committing to show up for myself on the mat every day and take some time to really listen to my mind and body. It's nice to feel a burst of inspiration once in a while and to be reminded of why you love what you do ❤️ Photo taken in the winter Gardens, Auckland.

I often hear people say they don't have any balance. Change your thinking. Balance isn't something we find and get to keep. It isn't something we look for or work for. It is something we feel and experience for a moment of time.

Nada ocurre por casualidad. Todo está perfectamente creado. Cuando entras en profunda meditación y dejas de ser tu cuerpo, entiendes que la Vida es un Milagro. La inteligencia universal que sustenta todo ser material y todo ser espiritual puede ser comprendida en ese espacio de quietud y silencio donde el tiempo no tiene ningún significado. Cuando comprendes que todo ocurre Aquí y Ahora, y que la intuición es la hija más fiel de la Creación, dejas de lado la razón para obrar desde el Corazón. #goodmorning #yogamorning #yoga #yogapose #yogavideo #yogapractice #yogaspirit #yogalove #yogagirl #yogastudent #yogainspiration #yogainspo #yogachallenge #challengeyourself #vinyasayoga #backbend #backbendlove #urdhvadhanurasana #wheelpose #camatkarasana #flexibility #flexibilitytraining #wellbeing #healthylife #posturadeyoga #yogaparatodos #yogaysalud #saludybienestar #bienestarinterior #conscienciaplena

Omg you guys... I can’t even begin to tell you how proud I am of @bendy_becca 🥺 When she started training with me she was just your typical super bendy, super one-sided, wannabe contortionist (love you, Becca! 😘). We spent over a year working on evening out the sides of her back, and have been training hard ever since. At the beginning, Becca drove from Reno to San Francisco as often as she could to take classes, and about a year ago she made the big move to the city so she could train all the time. And now she is absolutely a REAL contortionist 🤩 Her performance in the #contortionintensive2019 showcase was absolutely stunning, and she is well on her way to having a *comfortable* handstand. I am so so so proud of you Becca, and so happy that we have become dear friends along the way 💛💛💛 #trainingwithcatiebrier #contortiontraining #notyoga

🇷🇺 Мой #мостик вчерашний. #трудно очень для меня! Выполняю его в конце всего моего комплекса упражнений, чтобы быть максимально размятой-разогретой-растянутой, а после мостика - сразу в душ, так как не остаётся сил после😅. В данном положении простояла ровно секунду 😋, дольше не могу, руки👐 устают, слабенькие🤷. 🇬🇧 My yesterday's #wheelpose . It's a very tiring pose for me so I do it at the end of my home workout and stretching. #dina_exersicing

Fourth and final day of #beautyonthemat challenge 👗😊 and I have chosen #wheelpose . I have really loved this challenge, the gallery is absolutely stunning. Check it out if you haven’t already! So many beautiful examples that being strong and being soft are not mutually exclusive. It is my belief that true inner strength actually makes us softer ...as we uncover the strength to connect with ourselves and to be true to ourselves, we find an abundance of compassion, kindness and love. And yes, it’s also really badass 😁 . This is what I take away from this challenge. Oh and also the reminder to myself that I should wear my dresses more often!! . Thank you so much to the amazing hosts. Love ❤️👗 . ・・・ 🎉👗🎉👗🎉👗🎉👗🎉👗 Join us as we get creative and dressed up for #beautyonthemat Challenge. Each day we will explore open asanas with your choice of tutus, dresses or skirts!!! We want to see how fun and creative you can get!! You don’t own one? No problem borrow one or make one!

“Anyone who practices can obtain success in yoga but not one who is lazy. Constant practice alone is the secret of success. –Hatha Yoga Pradipika ____________________________ Urdhva Dhanurasana or Wheel pose . The first photo was taken a year after I began practicing yoga - it took me almost a year to be able to lift my body up. I was so surprised when I finally did it because I always thought my arms and spine aren’t strong enough. Thanks to my teacher and peer’s help and encouragement 🙏🏻. . I realised that it wasn’t the strength and inflexibility which are the problem, it was all in my head. . I was scared I was overthinking. I was doubting myself. . The moment I managed to get into the pose, it never goes away, and through continuous practice, it only gets better. It may not be a drastic change for some (after 3 years) but for someone who isn’t flexible, I couldn’t be prouder with my progress. I take my time and I listen to my body. 😊 . You got this, you can do it too! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #yoga #yogatransformation #yogaprogress #yogainspiration #yogagirl #yogapose #yogafit #yogagirl #yogaeverydamnday #yogaeverywhere #yogaforbeginners #inflexibleyogis #yogachallenge #yogateacher #yogadubai #dubailovesyoga #yogacandyae #urdhvadhanurasana #wheelpose #moreforles #inflexibleyogini
